Prawns Curry is one the regular dish we make whenever we get prawns. My hubby madly loves Prawns, so it is obvious that I have to make different types of dishes with this delicious sea food. Prawns are counted in the category of fish in bengal, and like all other fish lover Bengalis, I also try and taste a variety of dishes made with prawns. This delicious prawn curry tastes so yummy and so easy to make.
